åtto Abrasives is a leading manufacturer of high quality specialist abrasive grinding wheels.
We manufacture wheel specifications suitable for a wide range of applications and materials and custom formulate our grinding wheels using unique rubber and polymer bonds. Our unique bonds offer superior performance relative to conventional vitrified and resin wheels.
Grinding wheels consist of sharp abrasive grains held together by a bonding matric (rubber or polymer bond). As the grinding wheel operates, the wheel erodes to expose a fresh layer of sharp abrasive grains. åtto bonds are formulated to give the wheel strength and a consistent wear rate for optimum grinding performance.
åtto’s technical experts optimise key performance factors (e.g. bond type, density, porosity, abrasive grit, etc.) to formulate grinding wheels for specific applications. We create a grinding wheel to match your application and operating requirements.
Our grinding wheel range includes:
Grinding wheels (type 1) for grinding & de-burring of components
Type 2 / cylinder wheels for cutlery & industrial blade applications
Flute wheels for grinding & flute clearing of twist drill and reamers
Epoxy bonded grinding wheels for cutlery & hand-tool manufacture
Rubber bonded grinding wheels for centreless grinding of bearings, shock absorbers, etc.
